My slackware server seems to have lost it's Netbios share name. I can still connect to it using it's IP address, but I can't get to \\server from windows or linux. Everything worked fine until a few days ago, and I dont remember making any changes lately!
from an Ubuntu command line on another machine, running
smbclient -L \\server
gives this error:
Connection to server failed (Error NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME)
running the same command with the IP address gives the full listing of shares though!
/etc/smb.conf seems to have the correct line:
netbios name = server
Can anyone help me troubleshoot this? I'm lost!
Thanks in advance,
